Here are the rubrics for our TV Segment project. Neither are final drafts; there may be minor changes made to them before the project due date.
I will use one of them (labelled 'Teacher') to assess your videos.
The other one is a simpler version ('Audience') that you will use to give feedback to your peers while you watch the videos.
See you tomorrow :)
We have been spending a large part of our time working on a Meiji TV Segment that illustrates a specific change in the Meiji Period from the perspective of at least one segment of society.
Please double check the project overview posted previously to make sure that you are answering all those questions and meeting the criteria!
If you have completed your TV segment or you have extra time, start working on your rationale. These are to be completed independently and show me your understanding of how your group incorporated historical details into your segment.
Groups should be finished filming on Monday or Tuesday so that editing can be completed mid-week.
Here are the words that were on Friday's spelling test. You will be tested on them again so please make sure you learn how to spell the ones you spelled incorrectly yesterday!
This week we'll dive right into our TV segment project. On Monday we'll look at the information you've collected during our initial Meiji Period research and start thinking about how the major changes in Japanese society can be conveyed through various types of video media.
I've uploaded a first draft of the project overview. This may change -- but I'll tell you if it does.
I'm also including the text for the video proposal for you to copy into a Google Doc and share with me.
TV Segment Proposal
Objective of segment:
General format of segment:
Give a brief overview of what will occur in your segment:
Production details (what equipment or facilities will you require?):
What perspectives will be portrayed in your segment?
What roles will be required to create your segment? (eg. on-camera, writer, producer, director, etc.) Each member of your group should have a role.
We have started our research about the Meiji Period.
Questions for the Journal Response:
Our first November Quickwrite prompt:
I plugged it in. It clicked. It whirred. It...
Today we worked on expanding our Quickwrite stories and our Petition to the Shogun.
Please share your Quickwrite story with me via Google Docs (title: Quickwrite Expansion - Oct) or print a copy by Thursday.
We will start presenting our Petitions to the Shogun on Monday, November 13th. You should be ready to give and receive group feedback (on the checklist/feedback form you saw today - it's also uploaded below) by this Thursday.

We are starting to collect non-perishable (preferably canned) goods to donate to the Food Bank.
Today we worked on creating a Found Poem from a page of text of your choice. We will have some more time to work on it next week. If you have not chosen a page of text to work with, please do so and bring it on Monday.
A first draft of the rubric is available below.
If you haven't handed me a physical copy of your March/April quickwrite, or your second (or final) draft of your Aztec Diary Entry, you need to get it in ASAP.
Please share documents to my Google email. My username is krtempest (@ the same suffix as yours).
